In this magnificent piece he depicts a mother on a long journey, carrying her already disgruntled bundle of joy on her back. She kneels down, encourages and reassures her child that all the hunger, thirst, heat and the discomforts of the journey will be over soon, as they are almost getting there, but in truth she knows that they still have a long way to go. Even when she feels her strength failing her, her concern shifts to her daughter and she has to be a pillar of strength for both of them.

Every sculpture is made from natural stone and varies slightly due to the nature of the stone and natural grain which is part of the stone. Some stones will contain inclusions, pits, or fissures as a result of its geological formation. The natural recurring iron/seaweed strata lines in the stone give the stone its character and makes it unique.

Natural lines are colorful lines formed within the stone. These are not flaws, but rather signifies the authenticity of the product. Only skilled sculptors are able to work with the stone due its hardness. The stone can withstands harsh weather conditions and can be placed in a natural environment.


NOTE: Typically your sculpture will ship within 2-3 days after you've placed your order.

Where the Stone is Found

The typical Shona stone is an abundant material in Zimbabwe, with much of the stone coming from the counties “Great Dyke”. This geological formation which stretches along Lake Kariba on Zimbabwe's southern border with Zambia contains some 375 minerals plus fossils dating back 500 million years ago

Shona sculptures come in many shapes and sizes, as they are usually carved from pieces of stone that vary considerably. The stones most often used in Shona sculpture are sandstone, serpentine and granite.
